Today’s AC power is littered with byproduct from the operation of millions of personal computers, satellite set-top boxes and myriad other noise inducing devices. The new MPC1500 Power Controller provides total isolation, low noise, and maximum power transfer to enable the best performance possible from your McIntosh components. The MPC1500 features a large torroidal transformer that has been specially wound to act as a low pass filter to remove unwanted harmonic noise on the incoming AC line, while a quick-acting surge suppression circuit features a clamping voltage onset of about 2V above peak nominal voltage for the best possible product protection.

Toroidal Isolation Power Transformer

  • The very large Toroidal Isolation Power Transformer used in the MPC1500 occupies over three quarters of the internal space in the chassis. It ensures stable noise free operation for the audio/video components connected to the MPC1500. It also isolates them from potential interference produced from common household appliances that utilize motors, compressors and electronic control devices.
Stable Voltage
  • The MPC1500’s Large Isolation Power Transformer minimizes variations in the voltage available to the connected components as they draw more current, up to the Amp rating on the Rear Panel.
Lono Technology
  • The LONOTM (Low Noise) Transformer Technology from Plitron used in the MPC1500, eliminates audible noise emanating from the Transformer and thus will not distract from musical enjoyment, even with varying AC Line conditions.
Superior Line Surge Protection
  • The McIntosh MPC1500 utilizes the finest, most sophisticated surge suppression technology available. Unlike most of the AC Line Surge protection devices available, the MPC1500 doesn’t rely on commonly used inexpensive MOV devices. The MOV’s can fail after just one surge thus no longer providing protection and they can allow as much as 3 times the line voltage through to the connected components allowing substantial damage to occur. The MPC1500 incorporates TorusTM Surge Suppression Circuitry, which activates around 2V above peak nominal voltage providing constant long term protection.
Illuminated Voltage And Current Meters
  • The Illuminated Voltage and Current Meters indicate at all times the voltage available to your McIntosh Components and the actual current consumed by them.
Power Control
  • The Power Control Input connection provides convenient Turn-On/Off of the McIntosh MPC1500 with your McIntosh System.
Extruded Side Panels
  • The sides of the MPC1500 are extruded aluminum panels with a bead blast textured surface and a black anodized finish.
Fiber Optic Solid State Front Panel Illumination
  • The even Illumination of the Front Panel is accomplished by the combination of custom designed Fiber Optic Light Diffusers and extra long life Light Emitting Diodes (LED's). The glass Front Panel ensures the pristine beauty of the MPC1500 will be retained for many years.
